Queen City Pop-Up: RFP

Buffalo Urban Development Corporation, Buffalo Place, and Working for Downtown are encouraging the Western New York retail community to submit proposals to the Queen City Pop-Up Project.  This initiative is designed to encourage retail activity along Main Street by creating new “pop-up” shops that feature local retailers.  The winners of the Queen City Pop-Up Project will receive free rent in a select retail location for the 2014 Holiday Season.

For more information, or to obtain a copy of the Queen City Pop Up Project RFP, please contact Brandye Merriweather at bmerriweather@buffalourbandevelopmentcorporation.com, or by going to the BUDC Homepage.

This is a unique opportunity for local retailers to receive free rent on Main Street in downtown Buffalo for the holiday season.  Note that the all proposals should be submitted to me by Wednesday, October 8 at 4:00 p.m.
